User Picture

Your student ID photo is transferred to Moodle via an overnight process after it has been taken. You can update your image (for Moodle only) via your Moodle profile. Please ensure you are in the new photo as lecturers use these to become familiar with the students in a paper. If you delete any existing image your profile image will revert to your student ID photo overnight.

To upload a new photo

  1. Select Preferences in the drop-down menu on the top-right corner of the Moodle page.
  2. Under User account, select Edit profile.

  3. Scroll down to User picture. Here you can drop your image in the drag-and-drop box.
  4. Note: You can also find your image through File manager, which gives you several options for retrieving your image: you can browse your computer, use a file from Google Docs or Flickr, etc.

  5. The photo will be updated when you select the Update profile button at the bottom of the screen


  • You may be required to refresh your web page (press F5) or clear your temporary internet files (cache) to view your new image.
  • Photos are not updated automatically if a photo already exists in your Moodle profile.
  • If you update your official student ID photo, you may need to delete your old photo for the new one to show in Moodle.
